These renders may confirm your worst Galaxy Note 10 fear

Samsung removing the 3.5mm headphone jack from the Galaxy Note 10 is now being viewed as a strong possibility. Reports from multiple sources who have been right on many accounts in the past suggest that this is going to happen. The first Galaxy Note 10 renders that were leaked online last week were also sans the jack.

Some 3D case renders for the Galaxy Note 10 have also leaked out from China. Likewise, they also seem to confirm the worst Galaxy Note 10 fear that many Samsung fans have right now.

3D Galaxy Note 10 case renders leaked

Fans looking forward to Samsung’s second flagship of the year aren’t mentally prepared for this omission. It would have been another thing had Samsung done the same for the Galaxy S10. It would then made it crystal clear that the Galaxy Note 10 wouldn’t come with a 3.5mm headphone jack as well.

That’s obviously not the case. As we’ve already discussed, the decision to remove the jack from the Galaxy Note 10 may end up disappointing many of Samsung’s most loyal customers. If these leaks are anything to go by, Samsung seems to be willing to take that risk.

These 3D Galaxy Note 10 case renders have been leaked online by @UniverseIce. Take a closer look and you’ll see that there doesn’t seem to be a 3.5mm headphone jack. The cutouts that you see are most likely for the mics. These renders also subscribe to the theory that the Galaxy Note 10 is going to have an iPhone-like vertical rear camera system.

With Samsung even ditching the headphone jack on affordable devices like the Galaxy M40, it can be argued that it’s only a matter of time before a similar decision is made for the flagship series as well. If the Galaxy Note 10 does indeed ditch the headphone jack, you all know what that means for the Galaxy S11 then.

Those who are still holding out on hope may choose to believe that all of these leaks are based on a Galaxy Note 10 prototype and that the final version will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack. There may not be enough clarity on this until more substantial leaks surface.

I don’t really care for the head phone jack any more. If someone invests for some serious BT headphones (eg BOSE) then there’s no real problem.

Now hook it up to a PA system. There is more to life than headphones.

“you all know what that means for the Galaxy S11 then.”

This mean that jack will comeback with S11 as a new feature ?

Samsung is making it easier and easier with every iteration to leave them for other brands.

This is a none issue, you have to admit that now, Bluetooth headsets are widely available on the cheap. So the audio jack is no longer essential. Since getting the Galaxy Buds I’ve not even used the headphone jack. People seem to forget the Note device is a premium smartphone. If you can afford a Note10, it means you can afford decent wireless headsets. Have an AI (Alexa/Google Home), or wireless speaker system, none of which require headphone Jack’s anymore. And if they don’t. Chromecast audio will turn it into a wireless speaker! Lol. They’re simple solutions to the headphone… Read more »

So we all should put in the bin the 300-500$ headphones we have, because you see – bluetooth headphones are widely available? Also you should know that 250$ headphones with 3.5mm jack output a better sound vs 600$+ bluetooth headphones. Search the web, enough comparisons (with actual measuring) exists.

I don’t use Always On Display and I couldn’t care less about wireless charging. Of all the people I know with phones with that feature (A LOT) only one uses wireless charging and not many AOD. Should Samsung get rid of them? I’m pretty sure reverse power charging is not a deal breaker for the vast majority of people, should Samsung get rid of it? For the vast majority of people 128GB of internal storage is more than enough, should Samsung get rid of the MicroSD card slot? I know a lot of people that has never ever used any… Read more »

I’m not spending 2 grand on an audio upgrade system for my car just because samsung want to save money.. My car is a classic V8 and I’d rather keep it O.G..
if they don’t meet my needs.. then it’ll have to be the next best that do keep the 3.5mm jack..

Why do they think we need 968845588 cameras and no headphone jack?

No headphone jack = no using the nice AKGs er without an adapter… Now having the IR Blaster back would be welcome… I do miss that.

The jack needs to go. Why would you want to be connected to a cord? Really? The headphone jack will play no role in how many units they sell! Why do you think that they are giving free earbuds , Wireless by the way, for premium devices. I have been a note user since day one and will continue to be. I love the freedom of being able to walk around my house or whatever I may be doing without getting tangled in a cord. Samsung needs room to continue making the note series The Best of the Best!

I’ve been a note user for… well since note was introduced, but here I draw the line. I do not understand the stupidity of cordless headphones. I really do not. I refuse to be irradiated, directly, between two earbuds and that’s it. It’s stunning to me how people use these things w/o any concern. It’s not enough that we are blasted 24/7 by all kinds of emissions, and now I have to put these things on my head so I can bake my brain more closely?! Why? Because it’s trending? I can bet that the removal of the jack won’t… Read more »

Dude – it’s pretty clear that you brain was baked long ago. You also think that 5G is for mind control?

Actually 5G was tested in a park for short period of time and birds dropped dead from the sky. Some cities already forbid using of 5G. Search for that around the web. I still don’t have a 100% strong opinion on the subject, but it’s concerning to say the least.

“Dude”, when you have nothing to say, the better choice is not to say anything. Where have I even mentioned 5G? Where? The lack of thinking abilities nowadays is sickening to me.

I thought the Note 10’s hardware would be significantly better than the S10 and Galaxy Fold, but it’s shaping up to be the same. I’m glad the Fold’s been delayed, because I’ll be better able to decide between it and the Note 10. And right now, the Fold has me more excited than the Note.

OK, the jack was just a matter of time. It is the trend nowdays. But dear Sammy, why, OH WHY is the power button on the left side??? Furthermore, the camera cutout seems to have room for 3 cameras, so no ToF sensor??? Galaxy s10+ with it’s price down will be the perfect deal if all these rumors come true.

Turbotomate

I dont think that the power button is on the left. Thats propably the Bixby button. There were rumours about a buttonless Note 10 which turned out to be incorrect. But im sure that they will use a touch sensitive right side as a powerbutton to test this feature. Maybe we can use the whole right side or decide where we want to press. And the TOF will be in the small cutout next to the camera (maybe only on the Pro model).

Buttons removal on the Note 10 will be its demise other than the jack, but a dongle will be used and still be able to jack in.

I dare you! I double dare you Samsung!!!!. Remove it and I will never buy a Samsung Electronics device. You will lose at least 1 million loyal note customers if you remove that goddamn jack!

They really won’t. 1000 at most. People are able to get wireless headphones cheaply nowadays. So it’s a none issue for most consumers. I will miss the headphone jack, I believe wired earphones will almost always give better audio quality. But I have to admit, I’m not an audiophile. And as much as I’d love to say the Galaxy Buds sound awful because its Bluetooth… They jus don’t! They’re actually very impressive. And my wired mobile headset is jus gathering dust now. Its a shame, but it’s happening. And you CAN get high-res Bluetooth audio.
